Download issues

Download issues? Please read!

Hereโ€™s a service announcement from (the place where I host the mp3s for the show) that might explain why over the last days the downloads didn’t always work and still have some issues:

โ€œWe are moving many of our machines to a new datacenter July 26th between 9:30AM PST and hopefully back up by 1PM PST. At least movies, ourmedia, books, software, and some of the wayback machine will be disrupted. When we bring it back up again, we will have more room to grow and a chillier room. We will also be able to put in more bandwidth. We apologize and appreciate your tollerance.

Please be patient and keep retrying the download, it will come through eventually.

Sorry for the inconvenience, I know youโ€™ve been waiting for this show


(PS: if you happen to be able to give me a free 1TB/month of reliable bandwidth, please contact me)
